The multi-million copy bestseller and an extraordinary memoir about the transformative power of education

Tara Westover grew up preparing for the end of the world. She was never put in school, never taken to the doctor. She did not even have a birth certificate until she was nine years old.

At sixteen, to escape her father’s radicalism and a violent older brother, Tara left home. What followed was a struggle for self-invention, a journey that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers- the perspective to see one’s life through new eyes, and the will to change it.
